My Locale Mornington Peninsula AUSTRALIA
About Me Born in 1952 I only started backpacking 5 years ago on my 50th birthday. Whilst I live in Victoria my favourite hiking location is Tasmania, esp the South West...........less people & wet and windy location......rains 220 days of the year. I also enjoy sea kayaking and 4WD trips into the Victorian High Country
